The 1882-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the more affordable Carson City Morgan Dollars in the series. In general, Morgan Silver Dollars have a great reputation amongst collectors and investors because of how beautiful the design on each and every single one is. Collectors also buy the Morgan Silver Dollars because each coin has significant silver content. The numismatic value of the Morgan Silver Dollar can be attributed to George T. Morgan’s brilliance when he chose to have 13 stars (which represented the original 13 colonies) surround Lady Liberty’s face on the obverse (front) of the coin, and a magnificent American Bald Eagle that is firmly grasping arrows and an olive branch in its talons.
Morgan Silver Dollars were minted between 1878 and 1904, when production was temporarily halted until 1921 due to silver shortages in the US that occurred because of World Wars I & II. Through the General Service Admission, the US government was able to sell coins off to collectors and dealers, over the course of a decade in 1970 when President Nixon signed a law that allowed for this. Some of these coins actually came with a special GSA holder, including this coin. Truly a piece of history, the Carson City minted Morgan Silver Dollars are highly sought after, especially with the GSA holder which makes the historical aspect of the coins much more authentic and valuable. Carson City minted Morgan Silver Dollars are known for their low mintages. With less coins in circulation than their counterparts produced at the other mint branches, they are often far more expensive.
